Perrier-Joue?t Blanc de Blancs is a vibrant, spontaneous champagne brimming with crisp citrus and fresh floral notes. It is a homage to Maison Perrier-Joue?t’s emblematic Chardonnay grape, which it interprets in a style unique.
After creating vintage Perrier-Joue?t Belle Epoque Blanc de Blancs, Cellar Master Herve? Deschamps naturally wished to complete the classic collection with a single-grape cuve?e destined to become the enduring expression of the House’s specialist savoir-faire. Indeed, with Perrier-Joue?t Blanc de Blancs, Maison Perrier- Joue?t was perpetuating a tradition dating back to the early 20th century – the House introduced its first all- Chardonnay cuve?es in the 1920s, long before such champagnes became known as “Blancs de Blancs”.
To craft Perrier-Joue?t Blanc de Blancs, Herve? Deschamps blends Chardonnay grapes selected from several of the region’s finest terroirs with a small proportion of reserve wines to ensure absolute consistency of style and quality. After three years’ ageing on the lees in the Perrier- Joue?t cellars, the cuve?e is ready to be released, overflowing with freshness and vitality.
Pale gold with hints of green, Perrier-Joue?t Blanc de Blancs awakens the senses with enticing aromas of hedgerow flowers – elderberry, acacia and honeysuckle – and tangy citrus. On the palate, its mineral freshness lingers into a surprisingly smooth, mellow finish, which adds to the charm of this delightfully lively, luminous champagne.
